New guest post on RedefinED about Florida’s killer combo of surging youth and elderly population.  I recently did a podcast with the Heartland Institute on the same subject.

In a major news development, today the Heartland Institute described JPGB as a “widely read education reform-pop culture blog.” After all these years of struggling for recognition as a major voice in the pop culture world, at long last our toil and struggle has been vindicated.

Oh, and they have this podcast I did on the Win-Win report showing that the research consistently supports school choice. If you’re, you know, into that kind of thing.

Still catching up on a travel backlog – in case you missed it, here’s my latest pod-type casting module over the inter-net system of tubes via Heartland.

Our old friend Jack Jennings, aka the human torch, also makes an appearance!
